    Great work by law enforcement protecting our community from this evil doer poisoning our community. This 45 yr old has most likely been doing this for quite a while. Hoping that the consequences he’s facing are sufficient to prevent his repeating these crimes and that he has the opportunity to repent and change the direction of his life.

    The look of despair in his face is telling. I’m no bleeding heart, he did wrong and should be punished, but I hope he’s able to get his life back on track. I’m the same age as this guy, for whatever reason his mug shot hit me.
